KATHMANDU, March 13: Nepali Congress Whip Sushila Thing has drawn the Speaker’s attention, pointing out that an individual with a controversial image was included in the current Council of Ministers.

Speaking at the outset of the meeting of the House of Representatives today, she alleged that Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has rewarded a person with a controversial image linked to cooperative fraud by appointing him as a minister instead of taking legal action against him.

She, through the Speaker, also drew the attention of the government that no action had been taken when former Vice President Nanda Bahadur Pun's Secretariat and his family members were found involved in gold smuggling.

Thing said the House cannot carry out its business in an effective way without holding thorough discussions on all the above topics.
